and ellis are part of the dpw infrastructure and i say that in quotes a little bit because it's recreation and park garden staff maintains curb to curb in those instances. the true responsibility relies in two departments, but the reality is that parks and recreation garden staff will maintain the trees overtime. this is part of the clean neighborhood, $3.3 million to address this and other park improvements. >> thank you. >> good evening commissioners carla short, department of public works urban forestry. i don't really have anything to add to what dan said, but we did indicate this trees a tree appropriate for removal based on the recent limb failure and the presence of decay already. we're already seeing the signs of decay. the limb -- i didn't see it when it came off the tree as well, but based on what remains and i will switch photos on the overhead. basically this area is that limb that failed. so it does appear that it was probably a similar size to the other limbs, which is very typical for this species. they have a form that is not ideal. it's called decurrent. so they

like that. >> i am not sure what to say. we're here -- we got the appeal from the dpw and we were asked to do some things. we distributed keys and went with the hours of operations and applied for the property building permits that the department of building inspection and went through planning. so we have got gone through the dpw, dbi approved the plans. we haven't quite got it all signed off because we were told to stop on it somewhere along the line when the dbi permit got approved. we did the load studies for the people coming and going and access and push bars and the keys. so it's pretty easy to walk in and out of the door, it works and it can be accessible, if it needs to be. i'm not sure how you would get a wheelchair in the building once it's in there, but it's not a problem. we have to do something with the grade there, but we haven't finished a lot of this stuff and somebody was talking about the structure. we haven't completed it because we were told to stop on it. which they are all pretty simple things to complete, the structure. i think it's a good thing for the bui

. we need to get dpw out there. really the main thing left is the grade. we need to adjust the grade and that is dpw, but we were told to hold off until this is done. so we stopped all work on it, just because of that reason. >> okay. >> anything further, mr. duffy? >> the final inspection still needs to be done. it's my understanding that there is probably going to be something needed to be done to secure a level landing at the gate, that would be accessible. the 3' gate. it's also going to meet opening pressure just like any door. so if there is some problems with the weight of the door, it has to have five times opening pressure with a kick plate on the door. so there are a lot of requirements that have to be met. i don't know why they are at with that. i don't know if it was stopped because the suspension and it might explain why a door isn't working properly. i can assure the board i suppose it has to meet accessibility standards in the code. we will obviously with the appeal and stuff like that, this one we'll be paying extra special attention to, because there are obviously di

sunset out in irving street. i should come out here every week, the dpw folk are cleaning the streets pretty well. [laughter] >> it's great to see all of you here today. you know, earlier this year, particularly during the budget negotiations, supervisor carmen chu and i and a number of other supervisors engaged in a lot of discussions about what our neighborhood small businesses could benefit from as we saw indications of our budget recovery. and clearly we understood and have always understood the role of small businesses. and they're the backbone of the city and our office of economic development was headed by todd who is here and joaquin is helping out with the investment neighborhood strategy. we wanted to really demonstrate that, our commitment. not just by saying it, but actually doing things that would really support our small business. scott and henry and many others, benny and others who have been around us know that my favorite thing is to go to a neighborhood commercial corridor like terra val or out in the sunset noriega and have meals or breakfast or a cup of coffee and

that dbi is going to make sure that everything is done properly. dpw makes sure everything is level and that access happens. i want that to happen. it's got to happen. i mean it will only result in bad things for everybody here, whether it was the board that does anything or not. but i think what people need to recognize it's a public space. people can bring their cars into that space in order to pick up people and get their car out. they are not going to park it there. especially if you have to go to the hospital. so i find that just very basic, fundamental issue that needs to sort of resonate with you all. because it's not going to change whether we make a decision here or not today. that it goes with you or goes against you. unfortunately i think this process is being used in a way that will not get the appellants exactly what the appellants want or need and i have to have hope that the city agencies here to enforce the codes will do it properly and have hope when it's not being done or there are further violations that they will be there to respond. so other than that, i don't think
